Hi, thanks for your reply.
You are welcome.
THe things is I'm not that good with the structure of compiling Poco, when in the poco folder, what do I have to "make" first, I looked at the buildscripts and they call devenv, what is it?
It is __dev__elopment __env__ironment (a.k.a. Visual Studio). Google
answers it quickly.
I downloaded Express (2008) to build Poco and it didn't work, first there's no scripts to build everything with VS 9.0 and when I try the other scripts it doesn't find devenv.
To compile successfully, you obviously have to have the executable in the path and other VS environment variables setup properly. Visual Studio normally comes with a command line prompt properly set up with all these things. As for VS 90, at the time of last POCO release, VS 90 was not released yet, so it would be unreasonable to expect projects for it to be available there. They are, however, available for the SVN trunk code
Plus I know nothing of the VS compiler, I can't do it at hand! I thing I need a little help
We may be of some help, but a MS compiler forum or newsgroup would probably be a better place for that.
I wouldn't mind trying Visual Studio but I'd rather program on C::B and if I find a way i could give you my project files.
Sure, we would definitely welcome such a contribution. However, bear in mind that project files are constantly moving target and including them in the official release without (a) someone taking responsibility for maintenance or (b) someone providing automatic generation thereof, is not likely to happen because it is counter-productive.
